Skene (1860)

1600 met by the side of the Loch.

At Skene, Rev. Robert Ireland and his people came seeking blessing in the open air on the edge of the Loch, and they were not disappointed. A meeting was afterwards held in the church. Stillness pervaded the assembly. A number of anxious ones, inquiring what they must do to be saved, betokened the presence and the power of the Lord. Many also went home rejoicing, making the woods resound with the voice of the old Scotch psalms

From 'Recollections of Reginald Radcliffe,' by his wife.

Additional Information

The church is close to the Loch, quite a bit outside the town of Skene, which is now called Kirkton of Skene.
